I was pulled into simple living before I knew what it was. It crept up on me using the smallest of steps and didn't reveal its true beauty and real power until I was totally hooked. I was searching for a way to live well while spending very little money. What I found was a way of life that also gave me independence, opportunity and freedom.

Rhonda Hetzel gently encourages readers to find the pleasure and meaning in a simpler life, sharing all the practical information she has gathered on her own journey. Whether you want to learn how to grow tomatoes, bake bread, make your own soap and preserve fruit, or just be inspired to slow down and live more sustainably, Down to Earth will be your guide.

I love, love, love this book! I have not been able to put it down since I got it. This book is for anyone who is thinking of, or has started to leave a consumer heavy, materialistic lifestyle . This book contains a wealth of information, all delivered in an honest, light hearted, easy to understand way, with gorgeous photos. You find yourself relaxing just holding and reading the book, and looking at the pictures. The book also contains many tips for reducing spending and leading a more relaxed, happy life. It really is a life changing book!

A wonderful, well written book about Rhonda Hetzel's movement into a simpler life, and some advice and tools to use for your own.
While simple isn't easy, it is worthwhile and feeds ones soul

An excellent book

I've read that book cover to cover (borrowed from the library) but now decided to buy my own copy. It is such a versatile book, I see myself consulting it very often. Great investment and great as a present for weddings or young families. Loved it! Highly recommended! :)

I love Rhonda's blog, never miss it. Was so very disappointed when I could not find her book here in Texas. Was veery happy to find it on your site. Full of delightful and practical advice for living lightly and simply. Wonderfully written, feels like sitting down for tea and a natter with a wise friend. Would highly recommend.
